Interactive modules are easy to use, assign, and monitor to guide students through close readings of 10 widely-taught texts (stories, poems, scenes from plays) based on 3-4 common assignments:
More than 200 literature texts – and the ability to add your own. Assign additional commonly assigned readings from the many publisher-provided poems, short stories, play scenes, essays, and contextual documents. Instructors can assign these readings – or upload their favorite texts – and create a customized lesson or module around the selection.
Close to 500 hundred reading comprehension quizzes on commonly taught stories, poems, plays, and essays. These multiple choice quizzes report to the instructor gradebook and help students test their understanding of a specific literary selection.
Instruction and Exercises on the Elements of Literature – fiction, poetry, drama, figurative language, and more – provide students with an overview of key literary concepts and invite them to test their understanding.
Critical Approaches to Literature offer students a brief guide to each of the key critical lenses for approaching literature.
Author videos on the elements of literature are perfect for the YouTube generation and include T.C. Boyle on comedy in fiction, Anne Rice on transitions in fiction, and Frank McCourt on voice. Using the video editing tools in LaunchPad, instructors can annotate, assign, and add questions or comments to these videos, as well as apply these tools to videos that they upload themselves.
Thinking Aloud about Literature videos provide a window into the close-reading process of three students as they work their way through a poem by Louise Glück.
